Kanji in manga land help!

If anybody uses this book, please tell me how I'm supposed to remember the jukugo, and how do I study? Should I remember all the jukugo on each page before I move on to the next lesson. Please help me on this.

So, you're having trouble remembering something.
I am a beginner; I don't know much Japanese. I have some things you could try:

Use an SRS, a spaced repetition system. Anki, SuperMemo, Mnemosyne, and I personally use KhatsuMemo, but not for this specifically. Google any of them, or google spaced repetition system to learn more. Basically a glorified flashcard system specialized for long-term memory.

As to how to set up your SRS, I have no advice for you. I would use sentences rather than just two kanji but I would play around with it for a little and see what works for you.

When I spot a word I want to learn, I usually write down the word with furigana and an English meaning. Then, as jcdietz03 suggested, I write a sentence under it so I can learn context and usage.

Right now I'm trying to learn every single jukugo listed on the kanji (in the book) that way when I have completed the book I will know 240 kanji, with memorizing each jukugo means just from this book I would have learned like 1440 words!! Because there is like 6-9 jukugo a page. so I'll take a little at a time i guess.
